No. 2 Syracuse beats Hobart, 17-11, for sixth straight victory

first_img Published on April 5, 2017 at 10:15 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturco UPDATED: April 6, 2017 at 5:46 p.m.GENEVA, N.Y. — From 1987 through 2016, Syracuse has had its way with Hobart. All but twice the Orange captured the Kraus-Simmons Trophy. But that didn’t stop a group of students from throwing eggs at the team bus pregame or the chants that followed after.Hobart kept the first quarter tight, trailing by just one goal. The student section responded during the layover with an expletive-laden chant. The game remained bitter in the second quarter, during which Nate Solomon scored his third goal of the game with three Hobart defenders draped around him. The sophomore attack’s celebration prefaced a one-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.“I lost my cool,” Solomon said before glancing toward SU head coach John Desko. “I’ll never do that again.”No. 2 Syracuse (8-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast) struck first and never trailed in its 17-11 win on Wednesday night, even with Hobart (4-6, 1-1 Northeast) keeping the game close at Boswell Field. It extended the Orange’s dominance over Hobart since 1987, now having won 29 of the last 31 contests. Solomon and senior Nick Mariano both tied career highs as SU ended its program-record streak of seven consecutive one-goal games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMariano has led Syracuse’s offense during its six-game winning streak. He scored four goals and added three assists in the win, playing from the midfield for most of the game and drawing a short-stick defender. That gave him more room with which to work. During SU’s man-up opportunities, he scored three of his four goals.Mariano tied his career high in points at Syracuse, which came in the season opener against Siena. That was the last time an SU game wasn’t decided by one goal. The reigning two-time ACC Offensive Player of the Week, Mariano has strung together three straight games of three-plus goals.“It’s being up top a little more,” Mariano said. “It’s allowing me to be a little more free and get a short stick most of the time.”Colin Davy | Asst. Photo EditorFor three quarters, Hobart kept the game close. Up by three with under seven minutes in the third, Syracuse had a man-up opportunity and the chance to pull away. Man-up specialist Brad Voigt found the ball in front of the net, but he passed it off to the side, where Mariano stood unguarded. A top shelf shot put the Orange up by four. A little over three minutes later, Mariano scored again.“The pattern has been, for the last couple of years,” Hobart head coach Greg Raymond said, “fight with those guys for three quarters, keep it close. But this year, that didn’t happen.”As Mariano transitioned more toward the midfield, junior Brendan Bomberry joined senior Jordan Evans and Solomon on attack. The offense worked the ball around, finding most of its goals coming from off-ball cuts toward the net. Solomon took advantage of the opportunities, making acrobatic shots to extend Syracuse’s lead.Solomon’s first goal came two minutes and 52 seconds into the second quarter off a pass from senior midfielder Sergio Salcido, who finished with four assists for the second straight game. Stumbling toward the ground, Solomon turned and underhand-shoveled the ball past Hobart goalie Jackson Brown.“He’s a right spot at the right time kind of guy,” Raymond said. “That kid is a very opportunistic player, and he’s good in early offensive sets. Plus, he’s great off-ball too.”The sophomore capped off his three-goal second quarter with a pass from Paolo Ciferri in transition. Solomon faked a shot as three defenders converged. Knowing he’d get hit, Solomon ripped a shot past Brown.What happened after was left unclear, though Desko said Solomon talked trash to the opposition. The following quarter, Solomon re-entered and forced a turnover. He picked up the ground ball and, despite taking a hit, remained on his feet, charged toward the goal and scored.“Nate was pretty courageous,” Desko said. “He put himself in some situations off dodges where he knew he was going to get hit, but he held his poise the finish the ball.”As it did last year, Syracuse pulled away from Hobart down the stretch. With 8:52 left, Hobart scored to pull within three. The rest of the game was all Syracuse, which ended on a 4-1 run that dominated possession.Holding onto a safe lead and the clock winding down, the Orange sent out its backups. Dom Madonna replaced Evan Molloy, who made 17 saves in net, while the third midfield line made an appearance and added a goal — a Riley O’Sullivan score with 38.5 seconds remaining.After the game, Ryan Simmons ran over to grab the trophy named partially after his great grandfather. The rest of the team surrounded Simmons in celebration. In the middle of the sea of Orange stood Solomon and Mariano, the duo that contributed on 65 percent of SU’s goals.The teams’ 103rd matchup ended like many before it. And the Kraus-Simmons trophy will spend its fourth year in a row in Syracuse.CLARIFICATION: In a previous version of this post, the number of years that Syracuse and Hobart have competed for the Kraus-Simmons trophy, since the second matchup, was unclear.

San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane suspended three games for abuse of official

first_imgEvander Kane gets ejected in his last preseason game for “abuse of officials.” pic.twitter.com/OAKcqPWf2I— Brady Trettenero (@BradyTrett) September 30, 2019As a result of the suspension, Kane will miss San Jose’s first three regular season games, which include a home-and-home series with Vegas and a road game against the Anaheim Ducks. His suspension is without pay — forfeiting $112,903.23 based on his average annual salary of $7 million. The money collected goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.Kane called his ejection an “absolute joke” after the exhibition. San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane was suspended Tuesday for three games for abuse of an official, the NHL announced.Kane was ejected from the Sharks’ preseason finale against the Golden Knights on Sept. 30 for pushing linesman Kiel Murchison. The official took the 28-year-old to the ground in an attempt to prevent Kane from going after Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland during a third-period confrontation. Kane shoved Murchison with one hand after returning to his feet. Normally the infraction carries a harsher, 10-game sentence; however, as noted by TSN’s Darren Dreger, the penalty garners an automatic three games, which the Sharks can appeal. “I get kicked out of the game for getting jumped from behind by a referee,” Kane told reporters after he was ejected. “I’ve never seen a ref take five strides. If you look at his face, he’s getting all this power and he’s trying to drive me into the ice, which is what he did. That’s unbelievable. Talk about abuse of an official? How about abuse of a player?”If the team does not appeal, Kane will first be available to skate for the Sharks this season on Oct. 8 against the Nashville Predators.last_img read more

Oceanport Library Reopens July 1

first_imgOCEANPORT – The Oceanport branch of the Mon­mouth County Library will reopen on Monday, July 1, eight months after sustaining extensive flood damage during Super Storm Sandy.“The Monmouth County Library Commission is pleased that the Oceanport branch will be back up and running after suffering such a devastating blow last October in Super Storm Sandy,” said Renee B. Swartz, chair of the library commission. “We know the library plays a vital part in the Oceanport community and residents have missed their library terribly.”Library patrons will be able to check out books and DVDs and pick up their holds at the refurbished library. Children’s story times will also resume the week of July 1.The branch will resume its regular hours: 1 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. In addition, it will be open 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The new branch manager will be Katie Kenny.“The Board of Freeholders would like to thank the officials of Oceanport for their tireless efforts to help put the Oceanport branch back together physically, and also thank the residents of Oceanport for their patience in waiting to get their library back,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the library. “We are glad that this reminder of Sandy’s devastation in the area has finally been rectified.”The Oceanport branch, which is located in the Oceanport Borough Hall complex off Myrtle Avenue, sustained widespread flood damage during Sandy as did the rest of the borough hall building.The library now has a new circulation desk and new shelving. The library area has been thoroughly cleaned and repainted – a contrast to late October, when more than 18 inches of river water and muck washed into the library.Close to 18,000 items – including books, CDs, DVDs and periodicals – were either flooded or otherwise contaminated and had to be discarded, according to Monmouth County Library Director Ken Sheinbaum. Under FEMA guidelines, all books and other library materials exposed to floodwaters had to be disposed of, Sheinbaum said. Library computers, printers, shelving, desks and furniture were also damaged in the storm.In April, the Monmouth County Library received an insurance settlement of $283,704 to restore the collection of library materials to the Oceanport branch. The Monmouth County Library System is responsible for the replacement of the library collection items, according to Sheinbaum. The borough of Oceanport, which owns the building, worked to make the physical repairs.The Monmouth County Library System has 13 branches and 14 member libraries. Oceanport was the only branch that sustained severe damage during Sandy.Two member libraries of the Monmouth County Library System, Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach, were severely damaged during Sandy and remain closed, as their municipalities grapple with rebuilding.Member library Oceanic Free Library in Rumson has extended library borrowing privileges to the residents of Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach while their libraries are closed. Residents of Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach can also use the services at the Eastern Branch Library in Shrewsbury.For more information, please visit the Monmouth County Library’s webpage at www.monmouthcountylib.org.last_img read more
